will say, we are told, that the cia was able to disprove that. that the video at the end of the day didn't have much to do with it, if anything, but the problem is that disproving of that theory came after he first testified and briefed capitol hill and apparently after ambassador susan rice made those comments. >> that's why it's so significant, it also came after ambassador rice's appearance on the sunday shows, where she is now being grilled by john mccain and others. i'm talking to him in a few minutes. so it's very significant i think what general petraeus believed at the time. it does beg a belief, really, why would ambassador rice go on national television, having had a briefing we believe from the cia, which turned out to be flawed if the director of the cia right away knew this was an al qaeda affiliated group? >> yeah, you know, it's washington, isn't it. i mean, you know, the theory, what petraeus is expected to talk about is he had his talking points. he got them declassified, approved to go out there in public. when ambassador rice started talking from her talking points, th

of who changed the c.i.a. talking points on the libya attack deepens today as the white house says no one there made the controversial changes. according to sources on capitol hill, former c.i.a. director david petraeus said the original c.i.a. memo was al-qaeda linked terror attack, but that al-qaeda part was excised in favor of a reference to extremist organizations. so who made that change? the white house today said it only made one edit to the talking points which was to call the benghazi site. they told reporters, quote, we were provided with points by the intelligence community that represented their assessment. the only edit made by the white house was the factual edit about how to refer to the facility. democrats say this explains why u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice said after the attack that it was a mob protesting and anti-muslim video and not a terror strike but republicans contend the obama administration wanted to downplay terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from c.i.a. headquarters on friday afternoon in an unclassified memo to the point

, that was the official intelligence assessment of everybody. the cia, department of national intelligence, that was all the same intelligence briefing. everybody was getting at that time. by the way, the president is a pragmatist, and he's usually someone who likes to avoid confirmation fights for his appointees. but the more the gop attacked susan rice, the more dug-in the white house could get. and all of a sudden what i thought two days ago was more likely a nomination to go to john kerry. don't be surpriseded now, the president basically says, fine, to senate republicans, let's have this confirmation battle. the president's main goal, of course, at the press conference was to make the case that the public fully supports his view on the deficit reduction. and that means tax hikes on the rich as part of that solution. >> i think every voter out there understood that that was an important debate. and the majority of voters greed with me. not -- by the way, more voters greed with me on this issue than voted for me. >> he's referring to that exit poll number that we showed you yesterday on taxes. now, a

of all, it was obvious within 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said this was a terrorist attack. it was obvious to one and all that this was not a "spontaneous demonstration" because in realtime, they saw there was no demonstration. the -- ms. rice, i hope saw or ambassador rice i hope saw when i was on "face the nation" that immediately after she spoke, the head of the libyan national assembly, the president of it, said that this was an al qaeda attack, and she continued to tell all of the world through all of the talk shows that it was a, quote, spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that is not competence in my view. and i think that she should have known and she has never to this point declared that she was wrong. and the president is the one who is ultimately responsible, but that is not an acceptable person in my view to be secretary of state. >> but the dni seemed to be backing her up, saying we disseminated the intelligence to the executive branch, to members of congress. i mean do you think they are falling on their swords? do you think they didn't do that

to extremists, and we have learned in the course of this investigation, that there was a covert cia operation operating on those grounds, and perhaps part of the reason they pulled back some of the information was to protect that operation or trying to protect certain assets that may have still been on the ground or to protect the names of libyans working with us which were subsequently released under the ignorance of jason chaffetz and congressman issa. and the real question is security, as susan said, but do we have the adequate assets in libya. we have not been in libya for a long time and why didn't we know more about the fact that this kind of thing was coming and is it because we have not been there and we need more intelligence assets? >> certainly more questions than answers we have so more. and hogan, while all of this is stirring on the hill, we have the fiscal cliff talks going on or supposed to be going on as we enter into the holiday week. congresswoman nancy pelosi made some headlines about this comment about tax hikes for the wealthiest americans. >> would you accept a deal tha
